Health and care services to be restored from Monday

Fri, 16 Apr 2021

Health and care services which have been suspended or reduced during the recent lockdown period are to be restored Island-wide from Monday.

Elective surgery, face to face consultations, outpatient clinics, mental health appointments, health visiting, school nursing, midwifery and therapies provided in the community are among areas preparing to return to their pre-lockdown levels of service following confirmation from Government that lockdown restrictions are to be lifted after a prolonged period with no unexplained cases of Covid-19 in the community.

Services across health and social care will be restored at the earliest opportunity when it is safe and practical to do so, with some making a full return on Monday and others being phased in gradually over the next week.

A summary of Manx Care’s plans for each service area is available online as a downloadable document here:

GP surgeries, opticians and dental practices which have been restricting in-person visits will revert to an open door policy, and GPs will resume minor surgery.

The blood clinic will remain located in the Noble’s reception area for the time being, as the number of visits to the hospital by members of the public increases. The café will re-open at a later date.
